>> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today," with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> hello, everybody. and that means you, it's booze-day tuesday, may 14th. we're thrilled that you're with us today as every day. >> we are thrilled. by the way, let me just tell you something -- >> you look adorable. >> so do you, i like your hair all big and crazy. >> yes, the guys in the booth went crazy. i should have gone out with you last night. >> you should have gone with me. there's a gala in new york
called the robin hood foundation gala. it has 5,000 people show up at this event. it is insane. i went with jake, who is my agent, who is here in the studio. i took pictures, i want to show you my great photography. here is brian williams, the emcee of the event. thank you. here is jimmy fallon, with his quartet singing. thank you. and at the very beginning, that's the room, it's crazy. by way it was one of those rooms where you looked around and you saw justin timberlake, it was one of those crazy things. but the singing was crazy. when we first got there elton john was the first person performing at 7:00 straight up. >> you could almost go home after that. >> here's my video. ♪ ♪ >> that's all i got. i couldn't keep going. it wasn't working. then i tried it again when paul simon and sting sang together.
they sang "boxer." >> awesome. ♪ i left my home and my family ♪ when i was just a boy >> love that. >> that's music, hoda. >> they were so great. >> this organization, last night, raised $72 million. >> that's insane. >> headed up by an incredible man who is, a friend of ours, not a close friend, or i would have been invited. his name is paul tudor jones and his beautiful wife, sonia, live out near us, we go to their christmas party every year. he's an incredibly wealthy man. but they do such good with their philanthropy. they're really, really beautiful people. they're yoga freaks and the entire family. their christmas card is everybody is in a yoga pose and they're beautiful, beautiful people. next year i would like to be invited along with hoda-woman, that would be fun. >> it was a cool event.
>> and they raised -- >> $72 million. they brought the kids out from different schools. >> was that from the concert they did before? or just last night? >> just last night, unbelievable. it was a great, great event. >> send out another god bless you to angelina jolie. who we're finding out this morning, she wrote an op-ed in the "new york times" telling the world and good for her. that she kept this quiet, while she was going through it. >> she underwent a preventable double mastectomy. she got tested for a gene and a lot of women wonder am i carrying the breast cancer gene. she was in fact carrying it. but her was unique, a mutation of it. and her doctors told her there's an 87% chance of you getting breast cancer. with those odds, she chose to undergo a mastectomy. >> also a 50% chance of her getting ovarian cancer which her mother died from recently. >> in the last few years. >> it's a weird thing, when i
was diagnosed with cancer, i did the test to see if i had the gene. i didn't have the gene, but so decisions were easy for me. now i think they say only 5% to 7% of people have that mutated gene, only a small percentage of women. but i guess you have to talk with your doctors. i think it's a little unsettling, because if you do get tested and you have the gene, but you don't have the specific kind that raises the odds, what do you do with that knowledge? >> don't they usually give you what your odds are if you don't do x, y, and z? there are certain drugs you could take, some people don't want to take them. and there's a percentage that goes along with that. but everybody's case is absolutely unique. so talk with your doctors. >> you know -- some people -- >> i'm glad she had brad next to her through the whole thing and i'm grateful that they could do that privately. it's tough enough to face these kinds of things, she's a human being. she's not a movie star, she's a
human being, and those kinds of things usually remind you that they are, we're all just flesh and blood. and i tell you, the two things you take totally for granted until you lose them. one is your privacy. once you lose that, it's just, so unsettling. and the other is your health. >> your health. >> at the end of the day, if you don't have your health, how can you appreciate any blessing you have, you know? >> they say 40,000 women in the united states lose their battle with breast cancer each year. that's 40,000 a year. it's funny. >> how many globally? >> 450,000 around the world. >> but you know, it's interesting, because i remember when i was diagnosed with breast cancer. i went to tell my boss and i was so upset and i didn't know what to say. and he said, hoda, i know a lot of women with breast cancer and they all have one thing in common. and i said, what's that? and he said, they're still here. and it reminds you that the odds are high that you will still be here. it's funny, because my best friend's young daughter now knows a lot of people with cancer and she's not so afraid of it.
because she knows that aunt hodie has it and i'm here. and her other aunt had it and she's here. it's not the big scary c word for a lot of people that it used to be. >> hardly anybody survived when you got cancer. >> we are making strides, that's great. >> enough of that. >> this is so funny. there's this lady on the plane. >> you may have seen it we want to show you a little clip of it. she just started singing -- a whitney houston song. >> it was a long flight. >> l.a. to new york. >> she wouldn't stop singing. let's just take a listen. ♪ ♪ >> take a picture, take a picture. >> wait, wait. >> anyway -- >> this is the aftermath. ♪ i will always love you >> that was very hard song to sing.
very hard. i used to do it in my nightclub act. no wonder i don't perform any more. it's hard. you got to be a great singer. that lady is obviously not a very good singer and she has some other issues. they had to emergency land. ♪ everybody has a moment ♪ that changes their life >> anyway. >> what's -- the wave sing? is it my hair? that was just leading us into travel leaders group polls. they polled a bunch of people. >> here's the deal, when you're on the plane and somebody does something annoying or uncomfortable what do you say? for instance, if someone is hogging the armrest and you're in the middle and you need your armrest because you got nothing else and they have an extra one on the side and they take yours, what is it that you do, would you speak up? or would you? would you slowly inch your way over there? >> is it a finders keepers
losers weepers situation? who got it first? >> i think so. >> i don't know. have you ever seen people that have nothing to lean on, so they end up like going to sleep on the person next to them? has that ever happened to you? >> that's never happened. because now they have the flaps. so you just lean on the flaps. >> is that only in first class, hoda? >> no, girl. >> on jetblue? >> all over. i love one flight attendant. she said to me, i don't mind, the only kind of people who bother her are the people who like dead stare while they're flying. because they can read, they can sleep, but just do the dead stare. >> apparently three-quarters of us would definitely speak up if someone was invading our personal space. while seated on a plane. >> i guess you could say, i'm sorry, i'm sorry. >> what if they said no? >> i'm sitting here -- >> you risk that. >> sometimes because the tv screens are now on the back of the flights, especially on jetblue and you have to touch
them. and that can be -- i guess somebody was playing a game the other day on a flight. >> and it gets annoying. >> she turned around to say to somebody and it was like a 98 -year-old man or something. and she couldn't say anything. so we'd like to hear from you. i guess is what we're trying to say. go on and write something fun. real quick there are two types of people in the world. some people who like to watch people fall down and hit their head on video. and some people who don't. >> yes. >> okay, here's a baseball player from the washington nationals, outfielder, bryce harper. i'm going to close my eyes. i don't like to see people in pain. he ran into a wall. >> bryce harper did not take a great route to that wall and he bangs up against the fence and he's hurt. and that wall came up on bryce before he knew it was there. he's got to be groggy. >> groggy? >> and in a 6-0 game. who knows, his face. >> he pulls up right here. he could play it off the wall or -- oh.
>> never seen anything like that. >> okay. okay. >> he doesn't have a concussion, he needs 11 stitches. people like watching that. i don't like watching any kind of pain. >> that's not true. you like watching an elderly woman struggling to go up an escalator. >> it was going down. that was funny. i felt bad. she was literally clawing. >> hoda! that could be your mother or my mother. >> all right. it's the end of the road for lisa rinna. >> the latest celebrity to get the boot. >> she has so much going on, she doesn't care. it's the seal of approval on her latest approval out of the city. >> cute! >> you get diseases that way. >> but first these messages. switch your car insurance to geico and we could help you save on boat and motorcycle insurance too. other insurance companies are green with envy. oh, no, no, no...i'm sorry, but this is all wrong? i would never say that. writer: well what would you say? gecko: well i'd probably emphasize the savings. ya know...lose that green with envy bit. rubbish. it's just a reference about my complexion.
writer: but the focus groups thought that the... gecko: focus groups. geico doesn't use focus groups. uhh...excuse me. no one told me we were using focus groups. vo: geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. for aveeno® positively radiant face moisturizer. [ female announcer ] aveeno® with soy helps reduce the look of brown spots in 4 weeks. for healthy radiant skin. aveeno®. naturally beautiful results. >> announcer: introducing the great weekend sale at hotwire.

the previous challenge, lisa got the boot. >> i don't like that word. >> i've been your biggest fan, other than your husband, there's no bigger fan. >> thank you. >> and i think you've done an amazing job and you certainly are the comeback player of the decade as far as "celebrity apprentice" or "the apprentice" is concerned. but penn has been the star so far. i do want to see him in the final. lisa, you're fired. >> what? >> hi there. >> how did that happen? >> well he said, i really want to see penn in the final. >> why? >> lisa, you're fired. >> but why? >> i think you'd have to ask him because you know, penn's a great player. i mean really, i will say the two times that i was project manager, he helped me raise $85,000 of his own money he brought in, which they normally don't do and on my second challenge he brought all the heavyweights from foxwood. so he's an amazing team player. >> however? >> yet, i did raise over half a
million dollars, $505,000 for saint jude, which is so awesome. i won both of my tasks and i won seven out of ten challenges. so i think on paper i look good as a finalist. right? >> and to me it would have been the more interesting one. a man and a woman in the final. >> now it's trace and penn? >> all men. >> you have two tall men that are 6'6" with pony tails. >> wrong on every level. because i like your hair better. >> thank you. that's all good because i got to come back and i'm helping pen to win. >> you guys are friends. >> i love pen. i would have never crossed paths with him ever in my life. he's one of my favorite people on the planet. he and i are complete opposites and i have no idea how we connected. >> what about trace? >> i love trace, too, i didn't get to send much time with him. he picked me on his team but then he was moved off the team. they're phenomenal players, i'm so honored to have gone as far as i did. >> i was the last woman standing.
>> you sound like a contestant for miss america. how do you really feel? >> i should have been finals on paper. trace was the highest earner and i was the second highest earner. i really should be, but i'm happy for penn. >> how has the show benefitted you, lisa? what do you get beyond this? >> i had such a bad time, i had a horrible time, it was awful. >> what made you want to come back the second time? >> i didn't want to come back. >> my daughter said to me, mom, i think you should go back and fix this for yourself. >> how old is that wise girl? >> that wise girl is 11. i said you know what, she's right. i would be able to go and maybe make it a teachable moment and go back into something i hated and turn it into something so good. >> what made it such a bad experience? >> the people i had to deal with and work with. they just took me down. >> was it la toya? >> i love la toya! how you cannot love la toya jackson?
and let me say something about the whole angelina jolie thing, which i think is so brave. both my mother and my sister had breast cancer within six months of each other. >> so? >> i went and was tested and luckily, do not have the gene. but i think it is so important and so courageous and i love that she's come out to do this. >> do you know if your sister has the gene? did they get tested? >> she did have the gene. they both chose to have double mastectomies as opposed to lumpectomies. >> thank god there's something you can do about it. and -- >> there is. >> and they've survived. they're here, i just want to say bravo to angelina for coming out. >> i'm sure she's watching, thank you, lisa. >> you can catch the season of "all-star celebrity apprentice" with the donald sunday night at 9:00, 8:00 central on nbc. coming up, sara shows her wild side. she finds out there's a lot of fish in the sea. both tylenol and bayer back & body

it's that time when sara breaks out of the city for a new adventure. >> we hear you survived the droppings a little birdie left in your hair. >> supposedly it's good luck. i decided to leave manhattan to get an extremely up close and personal look at some of the sea animals and wildlife. >> i busted out of the city and made it all the way to long island aquarium and exhibition center in riverhead, new york. so, fish me well. i'm not one to kiss and tell, but the folks at the aquarium sure know how to welcome a guest. >> i'm about to get my first sea lion kiss. i've been practicing. she looks like my chihuahua. how about a kiss. he set the bar pretty high for kisses. he was wet.

donald rumsfeld, you heard us, that's right, the donald rumsfeld. former defense secretary and a lot more. twice he was -- he's got quite the resumé. >> through it all, he learned a lot of life lessons, everything from the four rules of a happy marriage to why everyone should own a dog. >> i'm a total fan. i just got her one. >> you have to. we made a deal when we got married, and that was a long time ago. 1954, we got married. we'd always have a dog. >> you're going to tell us in a moment why that's helpful. but first we want to hold up the book. >> it's called "rumsfeld's rules." >> we're delighted that you're here but i have a little confession to make. a few years ago i had an assistant who shall remain nameless, named mickey.
and she was so in love with you. she called yummy rummy. >> oh no. >> and that's all i could think of as you walked in. yummy rummy is here today. >> that was a long time ago. >> no, maybe about ten years and you're the fitness freak. you still got it. >> i play squash. >> and you work out every day, don't you? >> a little bit. >> there are a lot of interesting current events that are going on. we're going to talk about those in a minute. but this book is filled with interesting rules. you collected quotes ever since you were young and you compiled them finally into this book. why did you do that in the beginning? >> well my mother was a schoolteacher so when i didn't know a word she said, look it up. write it down. and then i started collecting thoughts and ideas from people who are smart and wise and i ended up sticking them in a file. and president ford one day when i was the white house chief of staff said, well, what is that? and i said, that's one of my friendly rules. and he said, well, let me see them. and i had them typed up and
that's where rumsfeld's rules began. >> and some are quotes from other people. >> and certainly not all mine. >> and there are people who are a lot smarter. >> let's talk about the four rules to marriage. you've been married a long time. >> how many years? >> 1954. i got married. >> that's a year older than did so it's -- 60 years coming up next year, you're 59. shoot. anyway, a long time. >> let me get my phone out. >> what are your four rules? >> the four rules about marriage. are really probably things that we all break. but it says, "i'm sorry" "i love you." "who am i?" no, what can i do to help? >> and it's interesting, you put "i'm sorry" first. >> uh-huh. >> people just can't say "i'm sorry." are doomed to fail in life, aren't you?
>> the other is i love you. that's -- that helps. >> your wife is an interesting woman. >> she was quoted as saying once that you're a little afraid of her. which i kind of liked. >> you're a lot afraid of her, right? >> well i'm not stupid. no, it's, i think back, we got married when we were 22 years old. what did we know? what do you know when you're 22? >> you think you know everything. >> my goodness, it's just good luck, it's good fortune. >> what's the one thing she's taught you, beyond everything else? >> humility. she, she is wise. and so i listen to her. >> uh-huh. >> you have to have somebody in your life you trust completely don't you? >> indeed. >> there was something about how the "associated press's" phones were listened into by the department of justice today. >> yes. >> they talked about hundreds of reporters and phone calls. what's your take, what's your take on that?
>> i don't know enough about it. that's one of my rules, if you don't know say i don't know. >> there's nothing wrong with that. it is a very important thing, privacy. >> and certainly a free press is critically important in a democracy. and the idea that government can do that, has to be done, if it's done at all, with a very good reason. and under supervision of some kind. >> the same can be said for the irs situation. >> oh, my goodness. imagine the power there. of people -- it sends chills down people. >> we are delighted to have you here today, thank you so much. and say hello to your life and congratulations, his first great grandchild is about to be born. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> the former victoria's secret model who says she shocked the fashion world and walk off the runway for good, right after this.

kylie bisutti was 19 years old when she captured the attention of millions of fans strutting the catwalk for victoria's secret. >> at first it was the thrill of a lifetime. but for kylie it turned into an experience that left her questioning the modeling industry and her christian faith. three years ago she was one of the sexiest women around. she was a victoria's secret runway angel. she had worked runway jobs for years, dreamed of being a supermodel and this was her crowning achievement. but eventually, kylie was ashamed. >> it definitely made me feel like i was being made to sell sex. >> as seen in this victoria's secret video, we talk about outer thigh, we take about making your butt rounder. >> kylie admits she was consumed by a pursuit of fame and physical perfection.
>> i really just started to feel exploited and sexualized. >> eventually, kylie followed her faith and took a bold step, she quit, giving up the promise of a lucrative career kylie moved with her husband to find a more centered life in the small town of bigfork, montana. >> she came to her convictions going i don't want do go down that road any more. i don't feel comfortable you know, dressing half-naked to sell clothing. >> kylie now counsels other young women about following christian values. she tells her story in the new book "i'm no angel." in a statement, victoria's secret said in part, miss bisutti has made numerous fabrications and misstatements of fact regarding her brief association with the company. but kylie's pastor says her story rings true. >> it's really the story of someone who is pursuing fame and success and money. realizing along the way that these things were not going to bring her the kind of
satisfaction that she was hoping for. >> and kylie has got a brand-new book out, that's fantastic. called "i'm no angel" and we're delighted that you're here today, sweetie. hello. so was it a tough decision? take us back to that time. you were obviously in a place that you thought was a great place. you were probably making great money. >> dream come true. was it a tough choice? and tell us what went into making that decision? >> well the choice was a lot easier than i thought it would be. there was just the total peace that i had. and you know, a peace like when i married my husband. that it was just the right thing and it was -- perfect thing for me. and so the choice that i made really was just brought peace to my life. >> i think it's very clear when you read the book, that you are not out to hurt anybody, victoria's secret or anything like that. and it really is very little about victoria's secret. it's really about the modeling industry, isn't it, that can be, can prey upon young women who
are really, really vulnerable. tell me about some of the things you witnessed that you concerned about. >> my book is really about the modeling industry as a whole and it talks about everything i went through from when i was 14 on about photographers that pushed me up against the wall and tried to you know touch me and get me to do things with them. photographers that pressured me into you know taking a little bit more off for photos. it was just a lot of pressure. pressure to be a certain weight. and -- >> a lot of bulemia. you saw a lot of drug use. >> a lot of drug use, a lot of bulemia and anorexia. actually one in five women struggle with an eating disorder. so it's a very prevalent thing. >> you don't seem judgmental about other people that choose that path and that should be said. >> we're excited, your gorgeous husband is here with you. we can tell you're very peaceful with your life and you've made great choices. >> you may not be a victoria's
secret model any more, but you are still drop-dead beautiful and we wish you all the best. >> dig into dessert without guilt. >> lisa lilja has desserts under 200 calories. >> kylely griffin here from the weather channel with a look ahead at the next seven days. severe weather to keep an eye out in the central part of texas and into oklahoma. tajing winds and possible hail. and also, pennsylvania, including philadelphia, tomorrow could be the site of some severe weather. need to be aware of that. look at how nice and warm it's getting down south, 85 in atlanta, 86 in orlando, 77 in dallas. minneapolis, 80 degrees.
